AMD Contributes Eclipse Plug-in

AMD has open sourced an Eclipse plug-in called CodeSleuth, apparently the equivalent of its CodeAnalyst Performance Analyzer

AMD has open sourced an Eclipse plug-in called CodeSleuth, apparently the equivalent of its CodeAnalyst Performance Analyzer, meant to give Java developers an idea of how their software is performing on AMD chips, including the quad-core Barcelona.

It's supposed to help them make "informed code choices" and avoid performance bottlenecks, even in compiled code. It should lessen troubleshooting.

Modern chips have performance counters inside and CodeSleuth tracks the counter information from raw address locations through the machine code emitted by Java virtual machines and back to the Java software. Once the location of a performance issue is identified on the Java software, the code can be modified to improve performance.
